Kindergarten Through Grade 3 - Learning and Development Standards

Ohio's Learning Standards Kindergarten through Grade 3 address Approaches Toward Learning, Physical Well-Being, and Social and Emotional Development.

These learning and development standards promote an understanding of the whole child and guide the instructional strategies that support all areas of learning.

These standards are not tied to any assessments but are intended to be useful in determining how to support students in these early grades.

The development of these early childhood education standards represented a collaboration between state agencies including Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Ohio Department of Health, Ohio Department of Mental Health, Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, and the Governor’s Office. The state agencies worked with national experts and writing teams made up of Ohio-based content experts and stakeholders to craft these standards.
